Fender has a tone of classic vintage amps that seem to stand the test of time. This amp is one that has the classic look feel, and sound of the music from which you grew up listening too. This amp features a great vibrato sound that just makes you want to play for hours on end.

The reverb from this amp is absolutely remarkable and alone is worth the admission to see the show. The tone from the amp is rich in history and sonic bliss. You can't find a bad tone in this amp no matter how bad you are at the guitar.

SOUNDS

If you need a solid Fender clean amp this is your ticket. The sound you get from just the vibrato is enough to make anyone want to get a guitar and jam in a surf band. The founr 10 inch speaker allow someone using a single coil such a Fender Stratocaster or Telecaster retain a lot more of the low end. Using a 12 inch speaker will loose some of the low end especially with weaker pickups.

I like this amp with of course a Fender Stratocaster. You get that connection to which both the guitar and amp were created for. It is a match made in heaven.

OVERALL OPINION

If you have the means I highly recommend picking one up. These are fantastic amps and should go to people wanting to create a musical sound every time the strum the guitar.

You can pick one of these amps new for right around $3500, which a lot of money for basically a single channel amp. This is a custom piece and the components are absolutely the best.
